A Guide for Supervisors and Trainers on Implementing "The Creative Curriculum for Early Childhood, Third Edition."
Dodge, Diane Trister; And Others
This guide is designed for early childhood educators who are helping their staffs implement the Creative Curriculum for Early Childhood, a curriculum that is based on child development theory and is developmentally appropriate for preschool and kindergarten children. A carefully organized and rich environment serves as the focus of this curriculum. Part 1 of the guide contains three sections discussing respectively: (1) reasons for introducing the new curriculum; (2) support and encouragement of staff development during curriculum implementation; and (3) the use of classroom visits by supervisors as a way to provide technical assistance to staff and to fine-tune the program. Part 2 offers workshop outlines and handouts for conducting staff development sessions. This part contains 12 sections, the first of which suggests workshop strategies for trainers while the second outlines a workshop that provides staff with an understanding and appreciation of the curriculum's child development focus. The following 10 sections each describe workshops devoted to a particular topic: (1) blocks; (2) house corner (dramatic play); (3) table toys; (4) art; (5) sand and water; (6) the library; (7) music and movement; (8) cooking; (9) computers; and (10) the outdoors. Each workshop emphasizes the value of its topic area to child development through exercises, activities, discussions, and handouts. Two appendices provide a copy of the Creative Curriculum Self-Assessment and Observation Form, and staff development forms. (TJQ)
